I take good care of my skin and have no problems with the rest of my face but my eyelid skin is getting slightly crepe-y. I love wearing eye make-up and, of course, do not wear shimmery products. Any suggestions?

    It’s important to exfoliate your eyelids as the skin can become very dry with little dry flakes on the outer corners or lid area. Many times you will not even notice this and keep applying your eye makeup daily to the dry area.
    OcuSoft lid scrub is an eyelid cleanser that comes in a box with individually wrapped pre-moistened pads. It effectively removes cosmetic build up and does NOT sting the eye. You can purchase this product at your local drug store. I will use daily for five consecutive days to make sure all the debris is gone. You can always use a face moisturizer on your eyelid area to hydrate the skin. Do not use a body moisturizer, as it will be too heavy on this area. After this process you will now have clean moist skin to apply eye make-up.

    When you are applying your serums and creams, it is okay to apply them to your eyelids as well. But best of all, there are some very wonderful products on the market for eyes alone, which should be applied daily. The one I have found most effective is from Brian Champagne. It goes on smoothly, and leaves the lids soft and receptive to shadows and liners. You can go to brianchampagne.com and see his products. And they are not only effective, but also affordable.

    First of all, make sure that when you touch the eye area, when removing eye makeup or applying products, that you are very gentle. The skin around the eyes is very thin and delicate. A good eye cream will improve the crepe-y appearance. Avon Anew Eye Lift Pro Dual System will visibly lift the upper and lower eye area. Use it morning and night. Hope this helps!

    Wow…thanks to all of you for your suggestions! I’m going to take everything into consideration. I’m pretty fortunate. I’m 64 and no droop, puffiness or bad lines around my eyes (thank you, oily skin). It’s so difficult to sort out all the new products and breakthroughs so it’s really great to have some “girlfriends” to give the scoop. Thanks so much!

    Wow you have alot of replies! And all with different answers!
    Well, here’s another one… I have used alot of different things and I have found the ONLY thing that has helped mine is from Avon. Its the ANEW Contouring Eye System! Regular price of 32.00.. The cream in the bottom jar is an Intensive Repair Cream’ and is used on both (upper and lower), am and pm, with the Concentrated Elixir in the cap used over the cream in the pm only. You should start noticing a difference in the texture of your eyelids (uper and lower) almost immediately! (within a few days) just keep using it..it will continue to improve the texture of your eyelids and surroundings area!
    Good luck! and thank you for your question…!

    Happy New Year!
    Without actually seeing you it is difficult to give you the best advise possible, but here goes.
    A great treatment is a Profractional treatment around the eyes. How this works is the laser creates pinpoint holes in the skin, as the skin heals it tightens up which reduces the “crepe – y” texture. Because not all of the skin is treated at the same time, there is really only 2-3 days of healing involved so downtime is minimal.
    I am assuming that this is not terribly severe, because if it is, then surgery is the only other option. Most creams, like Obagi’s Elastiderm can improve the collagen and elastin somewhat, but the results are subtle at best.
    Good Luck!

    I like to recommend not using a flat, dull matte, but try a satin finish eye shadow instead. Not quite shimmery, but adds a little dimension. But, the biggest trick I recommend for aging eye area is to define the eye with a stronger eye liner and mascara and use a soft tone shadow on the rest of the eye. That way you are still defining the eye and making it “pop”, but the accent is on the shape of the eye, not the skin on the lid.

    Also, consider using a brightening pen like Dior’s Skin Flash to brighten the eye area and even use it right along the top of the eye brow and it will give a visual “lift” to the eye area.

    Hi there-

    I would recommend an eye cream that you use on your upper lid as well as under the eye for starters.

    My favorite, Victoria McGill Intensive Firming Treatment. LOVE!!! And it works.

    Instantly: Deep penetrated moisture into the skin’s surface.
    Within hours: Resilient firmness and relaxed deep wrinkles and fine lines.
    1 Week: Dramatic reduction of crows feet, fine lines and deep wrinkles. Softer, smoother, more richly hydrated skin.
    4 Weeks: Visibly neutralized surface radical damage caused by aging. Continued increase of moisture retention and cell renewal activity.
    Continued use: Youthful, natural eye contours and healthy firmness is fully restored. Fine lines, deep wrinkles, and crows feet are depleted.

    2. Use creamy eyeshadows, not dry powders. Try Vapour Beauty Mesmerize Eye Color. I use and love these. Chemical free, easy to use and a plethora of benefits.

    Keep the color below the crease. If you choose to use a crease color, keep it neutral and light. You can blend these sticks and create your own custom color!


    Made with 70% Certified Organic ingredients and 30% natural mineral pigments & vitamins. Nourishes with Vapour’s Eye Specific Infusion of anti inflammatory Chrysanthemum, anti-inflammatory Eyebright herb and circulatory enhancing Horsetail herb.

    I hope that helps.

    It’s possible that you might have a hereditary problem where the fat in your eyelid causes it to be droopy and slightly puffy. That can only be fixed by surgery, but it can be helped slightly by using Avon’s Eye Lift. It’s not a permanent fix, but I’ve seen amazing results using this product.

    If it’s just slightly crepe-y, then THE best product to use is Avon’s Platinum Eye and Lip cream. You use it at night on both your eyes and lips, and it makes you feel, AND look, amazing after just a few uses.

    Good luck!! Chris
